Classes for Kids

What is your child interested in? On this page you can find lists of various classes for kids to encourage learning, fun, and exploring different disciplines. When you click on each type of class, you will find that it is organized by town.

We highly recommend contacting a few locations that interest you and asking if you can observe or if they offer free trial classes that your child can try before registering. Get a feel for the location, style of instruction, structure of the class and teacher personalities.
